Picks and Pans Review: Buzz Book: The Metrosexual Guide to Style

WHAT IS A METROSEXUAL?

He's perfectly masculine but is happy getting a pedicure and a facial. He's hip, urban, sophisticated and, above all, stylish.

WHO EPITOMIZES IT?

Soccer star David Beckham (left) is the ultimate prototype. He's taken his wife [ex-Spice Girl Victoria] to dinner wearing a sarong and nail polish. He's probably a lot more extreme than most men.

HOW CAN A REGULAR GUY BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM?

Your haircut, your watch and your shoes. If you have thinning hair, go short. A nice stainless-steel watch is best for most occasions. No dirty white sneakers. Buy a sturdy, masculine black shoe.

ARE WOMEN ATTRACTED TO THE LOOK?

It certainly will help. A lot of women really enjoy seeing men put up on a pedestal and paraded around. Men have to put their best foot forward.

WHAT SHOULD GUYS AVOID?

One word: flannel. And every woman I talk to, as soon as I say 'pleated pants,' her eyes roll back.
